Membership funds enable the Friends to continue to provide the park’s basic services such as: landscaping, graffiti removal, a dedicated park ranger, bench repair, supplemental seasonal maintenance staff, sidewalk sweeping, and excess seasonal trash removal. Contributions from the city and state continue to be limited, making your support even more important to the growing needs of the Square.
Although nearly 10,000 people live and work around the Square, fewer than 8% contribute financially to its upkeep. It is in everyone’s interest to keep the Square beautiful. Annual memberships start at just $50 and there are several different levels of giving suitable for every budget and commitment to Rittenhouse Square – there is even a membership for pets!
Whether you are a neighborhood resident or simply a lover of Rittenhouse Square, the Friends need everyone’s support to keep this historic landmark vibrant. Please consider becoming a member – while The Square has many fans, what it really needs is more Friends.
